The “Compas 9X” nke is a precision sensor comparable to an inertial unit, realizing the fusion of accelerometers, gyrometers and magnetometers data in real time. It delivers a true orientation in the 3D space: heading, rolling and pitching. Movement and orientation are available at the frequency of 25 Hz (NMEA output). The miniaturization of the sensor (MEMS components) and its integration in a new generation waterproof housing facilitates its installation on board. CHARACTERISTICS Consumption : <500mW Angular resolution : 0,01° Magnetic heading precision : 2°(dynamic) Roll and Pitch precision : 1°(dynamic) Gyroscopes : ±2000°/s Accelerometers : ± 16G Magnetometer : ± 0,8Gauss Operating temp.: -10°C à +50°C Watertighness : IP67 Weigth : 200 g Dimensions : H68 x Ø78 Warranty: 2 years Includes : bracket, 6m cable Ref.: 90-60-534 FUNCTIONS Under pilot, the system uses the boat acceleration data to apply a correction on the compass heading The combination of the 9X Compass with a Gyropilot (gyrometer integrated) enhances the pilot performance. A standard fluxgate compass does not provide the boat’s acceleration data. Therefore, there is a damping for compass heading data in order to get a stable value; otherwise it would not be useable. The integrated gyrometer in the autopilot partly compensates for this but with clean data coming from the 9X Compass, the performance is even better.
